The dead son of Gaddafi is a good example. Even though he was a well-known murderer, he was engaged with one of the hottest women. Normally you wouldn't understand why, but it's all about the power he had. Doesn't matter how corrupted he was.
Guess why you like Nole?
I can totally understand when you think like that, because I was the same some time ago, until I started to read appropriate literature to understand the backgrounds. Your theory sounds logical on the first look, but in reality it is something different. It is true that many men are intimidated by powerful women, but the real reason is (and now you will be surprised by the easy answer
) that men usually are not attracted to women with a higher status
. It is an emotional process.
I'm not saying woman don't value social status, we do, but I don't think we specifically look for a man with higher
social status than us.
Not anymore, not our generations, IMO.
I'm not sure Gaddafi's son is the best example here, there are a lot of other factors you need to consider in his case.
As for Nole, I liked him when he was a nobody.
I don't like him more now that he is famous and recognized, actually, and I have told Lee and star this many times, I like it better when he was not so famous. By it I don't mean him.
And why are men not atracted to women with a higher status? Because they like to be the one with the higher status. In other words, they feel intimidated.
